Our top quality honey and glucose based nectar comes with added vitamins and minerals, making this the perfect go-to energy drink for your modern bird on the go.

New Zealand’s native birds love this extra energy source, especially at times when natural nectar may be scarce or unavailable. When the weather’s challenging (or the nest is demanding) this delicious, nutritious nectar will help these birds stay aloft.

Feeding Guide: Mix one part Topflite nectar powder to four parts water. Cleanliness is important so clean and replace with a fresh nectar mix regularly. Topflite nectar can supplement the diet of nectar feeding birds throughout the year, particularly when there are no native fruits & flowers available for them to feed on.

FAQs

 

Does nectar in bird feeders go stale or ferment?

 

Yes it does. While we humans are partial to the odd fermented beverage, old sugar water or nectar is not good for birds. Leftover nectar or sugar water should be drained from the feeder after 2 - 3 days, and the feeder should be thoroughly cleaned to prevent bacterial growth.
